Teaching and Learning

An assessor will visit the apprentice in the workplace on a monthly basis for the duration of the programme. Work place activities provide the most natural form of evidence to prove competence. However, this is not always possible. Evidence can be generated from a variety of sources, examples include:

Knowledge evidence – what you know and understand about the occupational area and the way in which it is applied to the job. This is covered by the following:

  • Oral questioning
  • Multiple choice
  • Essays
  • Performance

Performance evidence – something which has been produced or done along with information supplied by someone else in relation to the apprentice’s activities:

  • Work place observations by the assessor
  • Skills test
  • Projects/assignments
  • Work records
  • Photographs
  • Audio/video recordings
  • Witness testimonies

The assessor works with each apprentice to produce an Individual Learning Plan which is specific to the individual and employer needs.
